Guwahati, May 29 (UNI) A day after the Army claimed of having incapacitated 60 per cent of ULFA leaders, the Unified Command, spearheading the counter-insurgency operation in Assam, met at Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi's office today.
The closed door meeting was attended by Mr Gogoi, heading the Unified Command structure, GoC 4 Corps Lt Gen B S Jaswal, senior officials of the CRPF, BSF, other security agencies and state government.
The meeting was reported to have reviewed the counter-insurgency mechanism in the state and an appraisal was also given on the current situation in the insurgency scene.
